Overview

Ever wondered how IKEA managed to become the largest and most popular furniture retailer in the world? Well, it might have had something to do with the fact they let groups of users share their experience of the products and create sustainable furniture to suit their needs. Co-creation has become a reality for every professional designer. And it’s second nature to our IDE ‘open innovator’ students at The Hague University of Applied Sciences (THUAS). Anyone can come up with a ground-breaking idea. But IDE teaches you to funnel your creativity by collaborating with all stakeholders, taking ethics and other cultures into account and making a positive impact with the launch of your project.

You could be the next bright engineer and design a DIY drone, which helps Doctors without Borders work more safely and effectively in warzones. You could develop interior solutions for urban young professionals. Or create a human-powered toy to comfort refugee children. On the three-year, full-time Industrial Design Engineering (IDE) programme you’ll learn how to develop smart new solutions for future challenges.

The first semester of IDE provides you with the basic industrial design engineering knowledge and skills. You’ll apply this immediately in your first design project. After that you can specialise in four dynamic semesters. During this time, you’ll work for real clients on integrated projects supported by workshops and skills training. You can choose a minor, a programme at another university, or an exchange abroad for a semester. In the final semester, you’ll put your skills to the test in an individual innovation project for a client or your own company.

Career opportunities

You could be an innovator at Philips or develop 3D printing technology for a small production company that makes custom-made shoes for the consumer market. Or you could set up your own enterprise based on one of the ideas you developed during your studies. There are many opportunities once you complete IDE and begin your career. But as a young professional, you do much more. You’ll discover the culture at your company and what the profession does on a daily basis. You’ll attend meetings and company parties. You’ll also learn all there is to know about your market – the latest developments, the competition and what they do.
